Securing a Texas medical license can be a confusing and frustrating process, particularly for international medical graduates. The Texas Medical Board recommends that IMGs apply six months before the end of their required training, in the middle of their PGY2 year, to allow time to acquire all supporting documents (with the exception of completion of the required training). Then, the TMB only needs confirmation of completion of PGY2 and they can be licensed. Applicants are encouraged to take the jurisprudence exam soon after they apply, as they must pass before a licensing analyst will be assigned to evaluate the contents of their applications and documents.
The Physician Education Loan Repayment Program provides loan repayment funds to physicians who agree to practice in a Health Professional Shortage Area for at least four years.
